Do Nash values have value ?

  title={Do Nash values have value ?},
  author={Bettina Schaefli and Hoshin Gupta},
The process of model performance evaluation is of primary importance, not only in the model development and calibration process, but also when communicating the results to other researchers and to stakeholders. The basic ‘rule’ is that every modelling result should be put into context, for example, by indicating the model performance using appropriate indicators, and by highlighting potential sources of uncertainty, and this practice has found its entry into the large majority of papers and… CONTINUE READING
